Cabinet of Rwanda approves National AI Policy
May 29, 2023
The Cabinet of the Republic of Rwanda has approved the National Artificial Intelligence Policy, which TFS supported in drafting from 2020 to 2021. The Office of the Prime Minister announced the Policy’s approval in a Cabinet resolution communiqué in April 2023.
The drafting of the Policy was an exercise of collective intelligence—led by Rwanda’s Ministry of ICT and Innovation (MINICT) and Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA) and supported by GIZ FAIR Forward, who engaged TFS as implementation partners. As an implementation partner, TFS led a series of workshops with over 120 private sector, public sector, academic, and civil society actors, and validation workshops with the public sector institutions responsible for implementing the Policy. TFS also collected data through interviews with over 35 local experts and 8 surveys administered to workshop participants.
